I checked out the IUNDTPEX website. It seems like that are suggesting two separate hotels a little way apart and then the show is at a different venue. Is AHPS having a central meeting point for our won meeting and presentations.? Where and when will the dinner be? I am not interested in booking into a hotel and then have to jump in a rental to get to where AHPS things are happening.

This is a "house keeping" question. Which Clarion Hotel in the Indianapolis area is the October 4-6 event? I think there are several out there. Also, are there any special rates?

I'm not sure what the red 12.10 represents other than it may be a top card of stack that was unpaid!
